Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in Physical Geography and Natural Hazards at Coventry University with research interests in remote sensing and natural hazard assessment. My PhD used remotely sensed data to analyse and model the relationship between earthquakes and volcanic activity. This involved developing a bespoke method that detects changes in volcanic activity in near-real time. The purpose of this tool was to monitor the behaviour of volcanoes so that future instances of unrest can be predicted. Ongoing research involves using remotely sensed data to evaluate patterns in the behaviour of natural hazards, monitor environmental change and identify instances of hazard interactions (i.e. where a primary hazard increases the probability or triggers another hazard). This has a particular focus on identifying the occurrence of natural hazard events so that adequate detection and warning can be achieved. 

I am also the Course Director for the Geography and Natural Hazards and lead modules in GIS, Remote Sensing and Natural Hazards. 

Research Interests

The use of satellite remote sensing to monitor earth surface processes, particularly natural hazards and hazard interactions. This has focused on the use of thermal remote sensing to analyse and model the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes at a global scale. More broadly, I am interested in methods of monitoring natural hazards using satellite remote sensing including both applications of thermal and radar technologies.
